Joy and Change!!!!
Some of you might be wondering how joy and change go hand in hand. I can't say that I don't blame you, but they do. My favorite quote is, "Life is about change. Sometimes it's painful. Sometimes it's beautiful. Most of the time it's both." That is so true. Change comes in many different forms and situations. It could be the expectation of a newborn, the expectation of getting married, the passing of a loved one, or the change in seasons. No matter what the change is, we can deal with them if we pray to Our loving Heavenly Father. He wants us to be happy, because we are his children. He wanted us to learn and grow, and if we didn't have change then we would never grow or learn to appreciate the good things in our lives. Keeping a sense of humor and learning to laugh is very important when these tough times come. I know from personal experience that if we turn to Heavenly Father in prayer that he will help us through the changes in our lives, wither good or hard. I know that he wants to hear from us, just like our earthly parents like hearing from us. Our Heavenly Father loves and knows us better than anyone.
